A senior adult patient who comes in for chiropractic treatments because of chronic pain said, “If I knew I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” Many seniors look to their chiropractors to help keep them feeling their best.
Living a long time is not the same as enjoying life for a long time. So, what’s the key to achieving a better quality of life? It often goes back to the ability to physically move without pain or reduced range of motion. These obstacles make it difficult for people to perform simple daily activities and prevent them from enjoying life’s best moments.
There’s a group of golfers who find chiropractic helpful – the youngest is 68, and the oldest is 79. They would report pain issues occasionally, but most of their statements go something like “Doc, I am not hitting the ball as straight as I was” or “I feel like I am not turning or twisting as well this week.”
